Directions : in this section you will read several passages. Each one is followed by several questions about it. You are to choose the one best answer A, B, C, D, or E to each question. Answer all questions following a passage on the basis of what is stated or implied in that passage.

Questions 111-118 refer to the following passage.
Solid state physics is largely concerned with crystals and electronics in crystals. The study of solid state physics began in the early years of the tweetieth century following the discovery of x-ray
diffraction by crystals and the publication of a series of simple calcutions and successful predicttions
of the properties of crystals. 

When a crystal grows in a constant environment, the form develops as identical building blocks are added continuously. The building blocks are atoms or groups of atoms, so that a crystal is a three-dimensional periodic array of atoms. This was known in the eighteenth century when mineralogists discovered that the index numbers of the directions of all faces of a crystal are exact integers. Only the arrangement of identical particles in a periodic array can account for the law of integral indices, as discussed below.

In 1912 a paper entitled “Interference effects of Rontgen rays” was presented to the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich. In the first part of the paper, Laue developed an elementary
theory of the diffraction of x-rays by a periodic array. In the second part, Friedrich and Knipping
reported the first experimental observations of x-ray diffraction by crystals. The work proved
decisively that crystals are composed of a periodic array of atoms. With an atomic model
of crystal, physicists now could think much further. The studies have been extended to include
amorphous or noncrystalline solids, glasses, and liquids. The wider field is known as condensed
matter physics, and, as we’ll see soon, it is now the largest and probably the most vigorous area
of physics.

Questions 111-118 refer to the following passage.
Products layouts are often defined in terms of the time needed to change the setup of machinery and equipment used to produce the final product. Thus, a firm that makes concentrated orange juice can use one assembly line setup and run it for one, two, or three shifts everyday without changing the processes or machinery involved. Each unit of the product follows the same route through the production layout. Similary, an automobile assembly line that produces only one model of the current year’s car can use a product assembly line for the entire production period of that model. 

When a manufacturing or assembly operation deals with a single product or one product at a time, it is possible to minimize the unproductive movement of materials and products. All operations are arranged near each other, in sequence. Raw materials are received at the first work station, and finished products appear at the end of the line for shipping or storage. 

Process layouts involve shorter periods of time between changes of machinery or equipment. They are required by factories that produce different products at the same time. For example, a foundry may have current production orders for several products –such as steel grill products, horseshoes, and wheelbarrows- and all products may be going through the foundry at once. Each product may invove similar operations, but each also requires separate processes. Therefore, not all machines can be arranged in a continous-process line. The layout must position the proper number and kind of machines at different stations in the line to keep all work orders moving. At times, some machines may be idle for a period, and it may be necessary to wait at other work stations. 

Product and process layouts are often found in very large plants that manufacture many of the parts of subassemblies used in their final products. For example, manufactures of heavy machinery usually have their own machine shops, in which a process layout is needed. But their final assembly lines can use a product layout. Then, too, smaller factories may produce many units of a product, both for their own use and for sale to other firms. A foundry, for instance, may produce wheels for use on its own wheelbarrows as well as for sale to other firms for their products. This firm could have a product layout for the production of wheels, while its total operations may demand a process layout.

a. not moving
b. not necessary
c.  not for sale
